IfM celebrates its 10th anniversary
A celebration to mark the 10th Anniversary of the IfM's foundation was held in London last night. Over 100 guests from industry, government and academia attended the evening reception held at the Royal Academy of Engineering. Economic and Business Minister, Ian Pearson, and former Minister for Science and Innovation Lord David Sainsbury, both addressed the guests and praised the work of the IfM during its first 10 years. An event was also held for staff and guests last week at the University of Cambridge Combination Room (see photo), attended by The Vice Chancellor, Professor Alison Richard. The London event was attended by British industrialist Dr Alan Reece, who donated £5 million towards the funding of the IfM's new home, now nearing completion on the university's West Cambridge Site.
